    The first Global California Conference was given at Cisco Systems in Silicon Valley in 2003 and over the years 11 statewide conferences promoting trade and investment between California companies and the global marketplace have been conducted. The past Global California conferences have taken place in Los Angeles, Sacramento, Oakland, Silicon Valley and Santa Cruz attracting an array of high-level global trade businesspeople and economic development officials from both the public and private sectors in California as well as invited dignitaries from around the world.

    This year's 12th annual Global California conference will take place on March 24, 2016 at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) in Monterey, Ca. with a focus on the trade and investment opportunities that exist between the California business community and the 21 countries of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). Additional discussions on the 'pros and cons' of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement and its 12 signatory countries will be discussed.

    The conference will feature an innovative panel on California's 'blue economy' and how it can dovetail on the growth of the exploding 'green economy', as well as a panel on Monterey's 'language capital of the world' and the unique translation, interpretation, cultural and localization services it offers to the global marketplace.

    Presented by the Monterey Bay International Trade Association (MBITA) and TradePort.org. Sponsored by Monterey County Business Council. More info, agenda, registration, exhibit and sponsorship opportunities at http://www.mbita.org/gc2016/conference.html
